In early January, a crowd of around 15 despicable types braved the cold outside a pig shop in support of our comrade while she underwent questioning. With slogans, banners and songs, we announced our disgust for TERFs, cops, and all the other custodians of the gendered prison against which we plot our lives of fugitivity and destruction. Just as our comrade gave no comment, we reaffirmed that we have nothing to say to the state either in pursuit of ‘justice’, or of ‘gender recognition’ from their bureaucratic machinery.
While social justice activists have gotten quite good at shaming those with subtly different views from their own, all their internet crusades combined will never match what the alt-right has shown that it can do–and is more than willing to do–to its chosen enemies.

‘The loneliness of the crowd’ – Another reflection on the events at this year’s London Anarchist Bookfair (UK)
Anarchists are no strangers to conflict or violence. Yet we feel that the way the conflict unfolded at this year’s London Anarchist Bookfair was deeply disturbing and should have nothing to do with anarchism. The organising collective have, as a result of events on the day and subsequent reactions, issued a statement announcing that they will not be doing a Bookfair again next year. What we would like to talk about here though is the worrying climate in which the events took place, and the dangers of dogmas in the anarchist milieu.

I’m bout to thug it out
if a hater talking shit
go head and stomp em out
if you got a problem we can settle it tonight
meet me outside you ain’t bout that life”

Jennifer Gann is a resolved anarchist trans woman prison rebel who would benefit greatly from a more established and broad support system. So, we've created three internet things for her: A support site on noblogs.org, a fundraiser on youcaring.com, and a list on Riseup. We've done this in the hopes that other people may be interested in playing an active role in her support and be interested in interfacing with people aren't so anti-social as me and/or us.
Right now there are three major goals which Jennifer has:
